The hotel is on the Kumbalangi island, which is about 45 minutes from Fort Kochi. We took the bus everywhere after walking from our hotel to the other side of the Kumbalangi bridge.The food was not only good but also reasonably priced. The staff was attentive.
The rooms themselves felt like I was back in my ancestral home in Ottapalam. Every room is named after a flower and smells of it too.
And the view is to die for! We sat in the pool almost every evening during our 2 day stay and just watched the plants float by on the backwaters. A great place for couples.

I book at deluxe room but when I arrived there was an overbooking and I was given a dark room without the promised view, a cancellation occurred and I was transferred to a beautiful bungaloo with a garden, which over looked the back water. I had a lovely 3 nights there, it was just the break from work I needed very tranquil.
"Meets Western standards. Good choice for this area."
Clean, nicely furnished rooms with bathroom amenities, fridge, complimentary water, kettle, large comfortable bed, working AC with temperature control. Friendly, efficient front desk staff. Complimentary breakfast buffet was good. Inviting pool on the rooftop. Good location (close to both train stations: a 22 Rp tuktuk ride if purchase official prepaid taxi just outside station= a few cents). On MG Road (2 minutes walk from top men's tailor shop in area, 5 minutes from a movie theatre and shopping mall, around corner from many women's tailor shops). I think this would be a good hotel for the business traveller.
It's in a good location and it's reasonably priced. The room had a bit of a musty smell but that's probably due to the high humidity levels in Southern India. They also require you to remove your shoes when entering the building. It seems making it easier for the floor cleaners is more important than protecting my feet from other people's diseases! The wifi service isn't always available, even when there is power, but at least the service is free. They tried to charge me for AC even though I'd paid for an air conditioned room so it's a good idea to have a copy of your invoice because their record keeping isn't the greatest.
Lovely hotel, great location, nice people, great room. I only stayed here one night but it was really good value. I spoke to another guy who paid 2/3 what I paid in a nearby hotel and his place was no where near as good. The interior is really nice and it is very close to the sea.
